Up was so good! I also liked Coraline. Two "kids' movies" that were way more interesting than a lot of adult films.

I really liked Moon, did anyone see that? It was directed by David Bowie's son. (500) Days of Summer was definitely one of my favourites, too.

I just saw Bright Star a few weeks ago, it was excellent. It's about John Keats and his relationship with Fanny Brawne. A bit of a chick flick, I guess, but a great film.

I think District 9 was my absolute favourite of the year.

I'm also incredibly excited about The Road. I hope it does the book justice. Viggo Mortensen is amazing, though, so I think it should be good.

1. Inglourious Basterds
2. Star Trek
3. Zombieland
4. District 9

I also went to see Transformers 2. Technically it would come in fifth, but only by default, and it doesn't really deserve it.

Watched The Wrestler and 50 Dead Men Walking during the week. The Wrestler was only so-so. 50DMW was amazing and I'd recommend anyone to watch it if they get the chance.

Oh crap, I forgot about that! I saw It Might Get Loud also. REALLY good. It's cool to see those guitarists' inspiration and backgrounds; a real lesson on drawing from your roots.

Primer

This is a very confusing movie. Probably the hardest to understand I've ever seen. But it's a very cool story with interesting characters. It was also done on an extremely cheap budget (somewhere around $7,000).

It tackles the idea of time travel in a very unique way, with two scientists accidentally creating a time machine and exploiting it to their advantage. What they don't count on is the trouble the numerous clones they create will cause.

Yeah, I was watching an interview with the director, and apparently they chose Texas because there you can get away with shooting without a permit as long as you don't get caught! (I mean shooting film, not guns)

i didnt think "public enemies" was that bad. i liked it actually, although i might have given it a slightly higher grade if only for the depp. i did think they should have focused on the script/plto more; the romance between dillinger and (i cant remember his girl's name now) was a bit unbelievable, they didnt spend any time making it seem like a believable relationship. he met her, fell in love, promised to take care of her, blah blah.

Finally saw Terminator Salvation yesterday. Much better than I thought it would be! Great affects, good characters, and an interesting story, considering.
Wasn't perfect, and it's a bit frustrating to see how much better it could have been. IDK why they decided to split so much time between John Connor and Marcus Wright (Christrian Bale and Sam Worthington). Should have just stuck with one and made the other a distant second. Marcus was a really interesting character that could have and should have driven the entire movie, but he feels ultimately under-used. Sad

Right now, I'm looking forward to Avatar, The Cove, and Alice in Wonderland!

Did anyone hear of "Whip It"? Drew Barrymore directed it, Ellen Page is in it. I just caught it at the dollar theatre, it was pretty good! Had me wanting to try roller derby, hah.

Wouldn't even know where to start with my favorite movies of all time! This year i saw a bunch of great movies, though. I thought Lars Von Trier's Antichrist was absolutely fantastic! I gotta say, while I loved most of 500 Days of Summer, I thought the ending was really cheesy. Inglourious Basterds was obviously awesome. Whip it was pretty cool, too. I still haven't made up my mind about Ellen Page; I can't decide whether I like her or not. I mean, she's cute, but I don't know if she really has range as an actress. I thought Zombieland was a nice surprise; wasn't expecting to like it as much as I did. The Cove was great, also, really sad. Moon was probably the best movie I saw, I was absolutely amazed throughout the whole film. I really encourage all of you to go out and see that one. You get a great performance from Sam Rockwell, and I think it's the director's first film (I also believe he's David Bowie's son or something, but I'm not sure), can't wait to see what he does in the future. Also, The Brothers Bloom was really funny. Rian Johnson is a great and relatively-new director, we'll be seeing big things from him. I could go on and on, but I wanna what all of you liked! Oh, and Precious grossed me out really bad, I think that was the point of it. I thought it was great, nevertheless.

Favourite movies...

500 Days of Summer
In Bruges
Requiem For A Dream
Shawshank Redemption
Away We Go
Into the Wild
Se7en
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Memento
NCFOM
The Machinist
OFOTCN
Lost in Translation
Moon
Tell No One
Saw

----------------------------------

There's a certain satisfaction I get from watching the best movies over and over, I'll almost certainly never get bored of any of those films.

This year alone there's been some superb movies. Away We Go, Moon, 500 Days of Summer, Inglorious Basterds, Taken (might have been last year).

The original SAW is still one of the very best movies of all time, perfect atmostphere, perfect story, perfect setting, perfect games and a twist I don't think anyone expected. Was just so good. Unfortunatly will be shadowed by the mediocre ones since 4/5/6.
